I can't believe it is a little over a month since I lost my mom and best friend, there isn't a day that goes by without me thinking of all the fun we had together, I enjoyed our shopping every Wednesday and holding your hand on the bus, life will never be the same without you mom.

Mom, I am missing you so much, I would give anything just to feel your touch, see your beautiful smile, I still can't believe this is real, I want to wake up from this nightmare.

My happiest memories of my mom. Was when she was filling the house with music with the artist of her generation. And my mom and I would be singing and dancing all over are house. She taught me to dance and appreciate the love of music. Which. I still do till this day. My mom loved to dance, and sing. And I do this with my children. and grandchildren. Who love to sing and dance. And enjoyed this memory, and know she is up their in heaven dancing with my dad and brother Michael and my daughter Carrie Ann and son.

Mom, I can't stop thinking about you, I remember when I told you that Coconut one scratched my face you would allow him in your bed, you kept saying you can't sleep here you destroyed Elaine's face and that is how we got blessed with Coconut two who you welcomed with open arms and once my face healed, you were ok with Coconut one as long as he promised not to do it again and give me a kiss. You always have my back, I am so honored to have you as my mom and not a minute will go by without me missing you and your adorable smile. Mom, you were the highlight of my day, no matter how bad things were, seeing you and your heartwarming smile made it all better, I love you and will always be your Eleni

Mom lived every day to the fullest. I admired my mother so much for her creativity. She would make jewelry out of safety pins and made a key that actually opened a lock out of a steak knife. Every day when I came to visit her, I was always greeted with a big smile, even when she wasn't feeling well. She was smart, brave, selfless and funny. I have so many happy memories of my Mom to help fill the void left in my heart now that she's gone. I miss you and love you mom so very much!

It was Mothers Day 2001, I was getting ready to go to my Mom's house to spend Mothers Day with her. My son yelled up from the basement apartment he had. He said you can't leave me with Saddie Lee. I said why not. Their is something wrong with her. I ran down the basement to find she was giving birth. So I called my Mother and told her about Saddle Lee giving birth. So she said I will make a deal with you, give me 2 puppies and you are forgiven for not coming over on Mothers Day! I said you have a deal Mom.! Saddie Lee had Cancer at the time. This birth extended her life 5 yrs.
